People, Culture & Wellbeing Charter

Signing the People, Culture and Wellbeing Charter is a declaration that your organisation understands the importance of implementing person-centred initiatives, by having supportive measures for mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.

This declaration is your organisation’s agreement to uphold the following principles:

Principle 1: Wellbeing of people and teams

We understand the importance of supporting and developing our workforce to sustain a culture of positive health and wellbeing. We recognise that:

✔️a coherent recruitment and onboarding strategy should be inclusive and representative of a diverse workforce;

✔️training and development opportunities should meet the needs and aspirations of employees and customers;

✔️managers should be provided with the knowledge and tools, enabling confidence to support their own wellbeing, and that of their teams.

Principle 2: Wellbeing through collaboration and engagement

We understand the relevance of our employees’ lived experiences and these can be represented through:

✔️recognising opportunities for employees to share their lived experiences;

✔️allowing employees’ voices to be heard as part of strategy development;

✔️seeking opportunities to collaborate both internally and externally to enhance the wellbeing in our workplace.

Principle 3: Health and wellbeing strategy

We understand the benefits of developing health and wellbeing policies and procedures which are clear and fit for purpose. We can facilitate this by:

✔️considering our strategy for health and wellbeing in the workplace;

✔️considering our employees’ holistic needs, including wider elements such as digital, financial and environmental wellbeing;

✔️taking account of evidence informed best practice and working towards high quality industry standards.

Principle 4: Wellbeing resources and support

We understand the importance of providing a holistic programme of wellbeing resources and support. We can achieve this by:
